Convenience-store retailer RaceTrac is opening its first two stores in South Carolina. The Greenville store, located north of Interstate 85 at 1705 White Horse Road, will feature an extended diesel offering and the St. George location, near Interstate 95 and West Jim Bilton Boulevard, will be the brand’s largest travel center.  

The St. George travel center is tentatively slated to open on Dec. 28 and the Greenville c-store on Dec. 29, RaceTrac told CSP.

“We have put a great deal of thought and research into the selection of these new locations, based on their proximity to city centers and the needs of professional drivers through the state,” said Justen Giambalvo, vice president of construction, engineering and special projects at RaceTrac. “As we expand our locations in South Carolina, we hope to meet the demand for clean and convenient facilities for fleet drivers and commuters alike as they fuel up and get whatever they need to get them going.” 

Both stores will offer motorists everything they need to refuel and recharge, RaceTrac said, while serving the needs of small to mid-size fleet drivers and construction vehicles with an added high-flow diesel canopy and diesel exhaust fluid at the pump.

  • RaceTrac is No. 15 on CSP’s 2023 Top 202 ranking of convenience store chains by store count.

The travel center features a large, easily maneuverable lot with spacious high-flow diesel lanes, overnight truck parking and CAT scales to meet the needs of professional drivers, RaceTrac said.

Typical offerings in RaceTrac c-stores include grab-and-go pizza and sandwiches, fruit and salads, Swirl World frozen treat station, freshly ground and brewed “Crazy Good Coffee” with toppings and creamers and roller grill favorites. Customers can also expect a clean, well-lit parking lot and a chance to earn rewards through RaceTrac Rewards.

Each new South Carolina location adds about 40 new jobs to the community.

RaceTrac is expanding to other geographies as well. It was also slated to open its first Indiana store in December. It’s also eyeing Ohio.

RaceTrac has more than 570 locations in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Tennessee. RaceTrac President Natalie Morhous was CSP’s 2023 Retail Leader of the Year.
